* the opportunity to attend our annual Convention & Show which travels around the country. In 2001 it was in Longueuil, Québec; in 2002 it was in Calgary, Alberta and in 2003 it was in Mississauga, Ontario, near Toronto. Our 2005 location was Edmonton, Alberta and 2006 was Ottawa, Ontario. In 2007 we returned to Mississauga and in 2009 we were back in Calgary. The Convention is hosted each year by one of our local affiliates. They bid for the privilege of hosting. Occasionally we have to skip a year and in 2004 and 2008 we had no Convention. After skipping 2008, we were happy to go to Calgary for our 2009 Convention. In 2010 we enjoyed Toronto again as guests of Lakeshore African Violet Society at Sherway Gardens and the Old Mill Inn. In 2012 we had a joint convention and show with the African Violet Society of America, Inc. in Detroit. This was an exciting new, international venture. In 2014 we were back in Toronto as guests of the Toronto African Violet Society. We have Calgary in our sights for 2016.
* opportunities to meet and share information with literally hundreds of other African violet enthusiasts across the country.
We would love to welcome you to the group!

There are also a special rate for family membership (two members, one subscription to Chatter) and special U.S.A. and International rates only slightly higher than the basic rate to cover additional mailing costs.
